on October 5, 1999
A well written book given its academic nature exposing the flimsy threads holding together the rather cold philosophy of scientific positivism generated not just by philosophers and scientists at the begining of the 17th century but giving a clear and tragic reason for its founding and eventual decline. A must read for science students given the persistence of this earlier, discredited philosophy and its pitfalls. The difficulty of current scientists, especially popular writers, to face the truth of the matter makes this book a timely addition.
